I found a new resource in the January 2017 issue of NAGT's "In the Trenches" magazine. It uses a series of computer models that allow you to explore the different phenomena that affect our planet's climate. There are numerous scenarios that you can run, changing CO2 levels, axial tilt, and more.  He...

One activity that I think would be really fun for elementary school is completing a tree journal. We are currently doing this in my Science Instruction course and I know it is something that I will use in the future. It requires the student to take a picture of a tree every time they observe is, rec...

Kindergarten activities
A fun activity related to science that would get kindergarten students excited to learn is to first read them a book or show them a video related to the unit/topic you are going to teach first. Then you could have them do a small project related to this...for example, if your first unit related to w...

One way you could emphasize the difference would be to teach by contradiction. If there's a warm day in winter or a contradictory day in spring (not raining if that's what the children think of spring), you could show them that the weather may be a particular way, but the season itself is still the...

I think that a really efficient and interesting way to teach weather in elementary school is to make it very hands on and visual. For example, I always liked it when my teachers did the activity with the tornado in a bottle. Also, taking "field trips" outside or to the window to observe the weather ...

I did this with my third, fourth, and fifth grade students a few years ago, only we went out everyday at 10:00 to "Wonder About the weather". We drew a frame and the sun. It was interesting to watch how the fixed points helped the students see the movement of the Earth. Also, we were outside to see ...

I really enjoyed to teaching weather for my kindergarteners. My CT and I combine daily calendar and weather report together for everyday's morning meeting. Students will observe the weather everyday before they get into the class.

I love the idea of taking students outside to have them see, feel, and describe what the weather is like. It gets the students moving, appeals to their different senses, and is a great way to help them have a better understanding of descriptive words used when speaking about weather.

You should start right away. There are some bulbs that should be planted in the fall. These type of bulbs should be planted as soon as the ground is cool. This will give the students the opportunity to see their progress when the weather breaks in the spring. It will allow for discussions throughout...
